Inspired By: Breezy Chic

Let’s face it; sometimes it’s hard to think about looking put-together when the temperatures creep up into the “no longer glowing, but sweating” category. That means we have to throw looking effortlessly chic out the window, right? Wrong! That’s when we turn to our beloved warm-weather staple—the basic summer dress.

When done in a chic solid black, this easy-to-wear essential becomes the perfect piece for a hot day. Paired with clean white Birkenstock™ and some cool shades, and you’re ready to take on the summer!

Inspired By: The New Hippie

Few eras in history have had the kind of enduring influence on fashion like the groovy ‘60s. One look around any music festival and it’s clear to see that the “flower power” vibes are alive and well.

Today’s iterations of the hippie lovechild look are definitely less about walking barefoot through fields of flowers and more about taking that carefree spirit and translating it in today’s diverse fashion landscape.

Check out our take on the ever-popular bohemian look below:
